AT&T Bold 9700 Movie Lets You 'Stay One Step Ahead'

One Step Ahead

Never before in my life have I felt like more of a secret agent than I did today. Granted it was only for a minute or two, but it was pretty cool. While nothing more than a frack'n sweet commercial for AT&T and the Bold 9700, Stay One Step Ahead, lets you be a part of a movie (more like a commercial) featuring you, the Bold 9700 and of course "the network". In my opinion a very cool ad campaign, connects to your Facebook account and runs through a short video that actually features you (it pulls info from your Facebook account). While connecting to Facebook may be a drawback for some, its actually pretty cool to watch the video (and kind of freaked me out when I saw my picture on the screen). So if you have a few minutes to kill this morning, you should definitely check this out. So what are your thoughts - marketing genius or total waste of time? Let us know what you think in the comments.



That is the shat! Awesome ad campaign on att and blackberrys behalf.


this is one of the coolest marketing campaigns I've ever seen! I'm still more of a big red fan, but it makes the bold 9700 quite desirable.


Great idea!

Fun to watch yourself (kinda) in a spy movie.

posted to my face book page as well. :-) cool find.


Had Bold, James Bold on their shirts the day the bold 2 came out.
I find this pretty ironic.


hahaha. this is a great marketing tactic. Brought good laughs.


can anyone post a video of this movie? I really want to see, but I dont have a facebook account. I dont like facebook (no excuse, just dont like facebook). Anyone looking to help out?


Without a facebook account, the movie won't really be that impressive. It pulls data off your facebook and incorporates it into the film!


What a neat campaign! Wonder who helped them out with this one?!
